Puyo Puyo Now Officially Recognised by the Japan eSports Union

Monday, March 12th, 2018

Puyo Puyo is now officially recognised by the Japan eSports Union, meaning Puyo players can now get a license required to compete in for-money tournaments in the country (due to gambling laws). This means it joins the ranks of Street Fighter V, Tekken 7, Call of Duty WW2, and several other titles in Japan’s eSports scene.

The first tournament will be held at SEGA FES 18, taking place on April 14 in Akihabara, Japan. There’ll be a 1 Million Yen prize for the winner (that’s around £6,750), with an overall prize pot of 1.65 Million yen (Around £11,150).

The full ruleset for the SEGA Fes ‘18 contest can be viewed by clicking here. Puyo Puyo Tetris’ PS4 version will be used.

Puyo Puyo Tetris Confirmed for PC Release on 27th February 2018

Tuesday, February 6th, 2018

Pre-ordering the game now is supposed to grant Steam users a 10% discount (£13.49) as well as access to some exclusive wallpapers and avatars. In addition, the Steam version adds an option to use Japanese voiceover.

SEGA seemingly tease Puyo Puyo Tetris for Steam

Monday, February 5th, 2018

Several not-very-cryptic pieces of ASCII art have been posted to the Steam pages of BayonettaVanquish, and Valkyria Chronicles, hinting that a PC port of crossover puzzler Puyo Puyo Tetris is inbound. It’s very in-line with previous PC port teasers (Vanquish was first hinted at in Bayonetta PC’s files, for instance), and the timing seems about right given yesterday was actually “Puyo Puyo Day”.

Considering Puyo Tetris is now available on a staggering number of platforms, it makes sense to push into PC territory; it’ll also be the first official Puyo release on PC since 2004’s Puyo Pop Fever. It’s nice to see SEGA Europe continue to deliver on their promise of PC ports, at any rate!

In what must be the puzzle game crossover to end all puzzle game crossovers, Puyo Puyo and Tetris collide to create Puyo Puyo Tetris. The game quite literally blends the traditional gameplay elements of both the Puyo Puyo series and Tetris to create an ungodly mash-up of epic proportions. Check out a gameplay trailer below:

Puyo Puyo Tetris is coming to PS3, PS Vita, Wii-U and Nintendo 3DS in 2014 and is Japan exclusive for the time being.
